That Déjà Vu Feeling 1,200 Miles From Home

If you’re a Minnesota Vikings fan walking around the French Quarter in New Orleans in the Fall (I visited with my daughter recently), it seems like you’re inexplicably surrounded by fellow Vikings fans.

Lots and lots of Vikings fans.

At least, that’s until you realize that the Louisiana State University (“LSU”) Tigers — located about 80 miles away in Baton Rouge — sport almost identical team colors.

For the record, that’s the Vikings’ jersey above, and LSU’s at left (“Thielen” — as in Vikings’ receiver Adam Thielen — should have given it away).

P.S.: LSU and the Vikings share one other thing: the Mississippi River runs through both Baton Rouge and the Twin Cities.
